Coverage: The Marathon As Reported by the Boston Globe

How has Boston's oldest newspaper covered the world's oldest marathon?  How has the expanding population of runners been depicted?  How has the newspaper's visual presentation of the race, and of itself, evolved? Drawing on the Globe's post-World War II archives, Coverage: The Marathon As Reported by the Boston Globe presents blown-up pages that highlight telling moments. 

Immediately after the reception at 3pm, Boston: The Documentary, Jon Dunham's film on the history of the race, narrated by Matt Damon, will be shown, followed by a Q&A with executive producer Tom Derderian. Tickets to the screening may be purchased in person or online HERE

Boston the Documentary (Film)

+ More Info

Special Marathon Weekend Event:
Join us for a screening of "BOSTON" the documentary with a special Q&A after the film with executive producer Tom Derderian. 

Sunday, April 19 at 3pm.
Tickets: $12 per person. $10 for students/seniors. Buy here.

BOSTON, narrated by Matt Damon, is the first feature-length documentary film about the world's most legendary running race - the Boston Marathon. The film chronicles the story of the iconic race from its humble origins 120 years ago, starting with only 15 runners, to the present day. The Boston Athletic Association granted exclusive documentary rights to BOSTON producers as well as use of the Association's extensive archive of video, photos, and memorabilia. The film showcases many of the most important moments in the history of the oldest annually contested marathon in the world. Evolving from a working man's challenge to welcoming foreign athletes and, eventually, women, Boston is the stage for many firsts paving the way for the modern marathon and mass participatory sports.

BOSTON immerses the viewer into the world of the marathon – the only sport in which an everyday athlete can participate alongside the best in the world – to experience the preparation, competition and camaraderie of the runners and the loyal dedication and support of the spectators. Recounting the history of Boston champions such as Johnny Kelley – who ran the marathon through eight decades; and Stylianos Kyriakides – who won in 1946 to raise money for food, supplies and other relief for his home nation, Greece; and following modern athletes such as Olympic medalist Shalane Flanagan, BOSTON connects the history of the marathon and its runners with the 2014 race in an inspiring telling of heroism, friendship, dedication, and bravery.

Following the tragic events of 2013, BOSTON records the preparations and eventual running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later when runners and the community gather once again in support of one another for what would be the most meaningful race of all. Runners and spectators join together, “Boston Strong,” to overcome the fear of the terrible, exhibiting the best of the human spirit. Accompanied by Jeff Beal’s original score and narrated by Boston native Matt Damon, BOSTON imparts an emotional journey into the wondrous kaleidoscope of the marathon, a microcosm of the ability of humans of all ages, genders and races to be unified by a single event.

BOSTON premiered on April 15, 2017
 

"The Boston Marathon is like no other event in the world, and to have its history captured through this type of exclusive documentary is extraordinary." - Mayor Marty Walsh, The Boston Globe

Executive Producer Tom Derderian will be joining us for the screening as well. He’s the world’s foremost expert on the history of the Boston Marathon an accomplished runner and coach of the Greater Boston Track Club.

Online - FREE: Oil Painting

+ More Info

Mondays at 2pm with Zoom with Marion Buricatu

Registering is free. The HCA asks that you make a donation to help the center in lieu of paying tuition for this 6 class session. LINK: donation 

Every dollar raised will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000.

Here is how it works:

  • Each student works on his/her own project.
  • We use a shared folder on Google drive called "HCA Oil Painting Class Sharing Folder," where everybody can upload a picture of their painting. (If you can't do it, you can send your picture directly to the instructor). This process allows us to have a better image quality, even if it will never be as good as real life eyes!
  • Marion will try to send a weekly challenge about basic painting skills that will not take you more than 20 minutes to do at home. 
  • Once a week, on Monday at 2pm, we will meet on Zoom and share our projects. Some will just want to show and tell, some will look for feedback/criticism, some will just have nothing to share that week but enjoy participating in this kind and stimulating environment!
  • The meeting is supposed to last about 40 minutes, but you can leave anytime.
  • Marion will supply a materials list for new students.

Online Sculpey Clay Workshop: Fairies & Forest Folk

+ More Info

These polymer clay classes will focus on utilizing the unique attributes of this brightly colored home-baked clay to create one-of-a-kind miniature pieces of art that can be both functional (e.g., as toys or jewelry) and beautiful!

In this series of 1.5 hour online workshops, we will work with students to build techniques to create things from life and imagination in 3-D. We will be using Zoom to meet with students and share our energy and knowledge about utilizing this colorful bake-at-home clay.  Each 1.5 hour workshop is $20.00. 

These clay classes will be offered online, so students will need a phone, computer, or ipad with a camera and a small space to work at home. Students will also need aluminum foil to cover their work space, and will need to purchase their own supplies. These can be purchased on Amazon or at a Michaels store, which is now offering curbside pick-up. Here are links to these items on Amazon:
